Description: Hazelnut Kitchen is located in Trumansburg NY, the heart of the Finger Lakes Region. Since 2007, we have been using locally sourced farm ingredients in a casually elegant open kitchen dining atmosphere. Our menu changes frequently, inspired by what’s in season and reflects our commitment to utilize goods obtained from local farmers and producers. Although our approach is simple and clean, the outcome is uniquely delicious. We invite you to join us for dinner and experience the best that the season has to offer!

“Very Nice”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

Cheese plate appetizer was exceptional---especially the local Camembert. My wife's seafood sausage (yeah, that's right) was spicy and tasty...my pork tenderloin was quite good. Nice selection of local wines. The meal was a definite cut above in a nice little countryside town.

“Not to be missed!”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

I recently dined here with recommendations from Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. We made reservations. It is a small space, but bright and fun. It is a somewhat small menu, with daily specials. Very fresh and creative. Our appetizers, entree and dessert were perfect. Service is friendly and efficient and would return next time I am in the Finger Lakes.

“Rivals NYC Best!”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

With no reservations, my partner and I were fortunate enough to be seated at the chef's table which overlooks the kithchen. We sat chatting with the chef and sous chef, while they continually delighted our palates with samplings from the menu. The "Farm to Table" concept was so well demonstrated as we watched a farmer rush in to deliver a bulging basket blueberries. Blueberries were incorporated in many of the menu offerings that evening. Hazelnut Kitchen would have been deserving of a 5 rating had it not been for the unwelcoming and chilly reception offered by the maitre d'. This was no off moment as we experienced the same chilly reception when my partner and I returned the following week. A warming and welcoming smile is almost as important as the food served...however, the two men in the kitchen and their food took the chill right out of the air!

The food is mostly local and seasonal. It is prepared with an extremely high level of professionalism. The servers are friendly, helpful, and general all-around wonderful.
